QUESTIONS

What are the benefits of Placenta Encapsulation?

  • increased breastmilk supply

  • balancing of the hormones

  • helps combat the "baby blues" and Postpartum Depression

  • increase in energy levels

  • decrease in fatigue

  • overall better mood

How and when do I contact you?

We ask that you contact your placenta specialist between the hours of 9am and 9pm within 12 hours of the birth of your baby. Ideally, your placenta will be encapsulated within the first 24-48 hours of birth. Contacting us promptly will allow us to coordinate our schedules so that we can accommodate you at your earliest convenience.

What do you need from me?

You can feel confident that our equipment and supplies are sanitized according to our Blood-borne Pathogen training and prepared for your encapsulation. All we need from you is the placenta, the agreement sent along with your deposit, and for you to bring a cooler to the hospital. Everything else is our responsibility.

What do I do with the placenta until you get here?

Let your provider know you plan on taking the placenta with you and that you have a cooler. The nurse will double bag the placenta typically in biohazard bags. The placenta MUST be placed in a small cooler (that you bring with you) over ice within 2-4 hours of the birth. Keep the ice fresh every 4-6 hours if baby is born overnight and we will not be picking up until morning. You will need to place the placenta in the freezer if you are at home/when you get home if we cannot get to you immediately, we will provide you with specific instructions should this situation arise.

When do you start the process?

Ideally, we would like to begin the process within 1-2 days of the birth of your baby, so that your capsules will be ready for ingestion by day 5. If this is not possible, freezing your placenta and then defrosting it prior to encapsulation is recommended. We pick up placentas between 9am-9pm. If we are at a birth and unable to pick up, please keep it in your cooler on ice, or have a family member take it home to freeze it. (No worries, it is double-triple bagged!)

What Is The Length of the process?

The entire process takes approximately 2 days. The placenta will dehydrate overnight for 12-16 hours. We typically return placenta capsules to you within 48-72 hours of pick up. We only process one placenta at a time. We do not suggest or recommend taking placenta capsules until postpartum day 5 or beyond.

When Do I my capsules?

While we will discuss general guidelines for consumption after the 5th day of the postpartum, we will discuss adjusting dosage and consumption to meets your needs.
